Rosslyn Chapel music

"Musicians unlock mystery melody in Scottish chapel"http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070501/ts_nm/britain_mystery_code_dc

This really caught my eye when I saw it. The article is about the possible encoding of music in some of the carvings of Rosslyn Chapel. The notes used to do it where encoded in
... cymatics, or Chladni patterns.


The only time I have ever encountered something like this is with prime numbers. If I remember correctly certain key notes in music produce shapes with prime attributes. It brings to mind the concept that math is a universal language.
